Welcome to Ridgefield Academy! Everything we do at RA - from our challenging academic curriculum to our wide variety of athletic, artistic, and service activities—is guided by our mission
, and I am eager to show you how we have graduated empowered
and engaged young men and women for the past 42 years. Our Landmark Preschools in Bedford
, and Westport
all lead to the culminating K-8 experience
on our beautiful forty-two acre campus, a close-knit learning community where students are valued, supported, and inspired to excel by an outstanding faculty and staff.
While you will want to explore our website and learn more about our school’s story, the best way to understand the value of an RA education and to answer your questions is to visit our school and discover how we might partner together. To learn more about RA, we invite you to attend an Admission Open House
at your earliest convenience. This will be a chance for prospective families to visit our campus for a tour, meet with members of our faculty and learn more about our unique programs and educational philosophy. We also offer day visits for students and parent interviews can be scheduled at any time.
You may begin the application process by calling our office at (203) 894-1800 to schedule an appointment, or by requesting more information
. I know you will appreciate the benefits of our vibrant, empowering, special community. Please feel free to contact me at any time; I look forward to serving you.
